What would it cost?

Clean State recommends that this initiative is funded through a new Climate Emergency Services Levy (CESL) imposed on WA’s largest carbon polluters at a level proportionate to the pollution they release.  Applying this at the rate of $1.50 per tonne of carbon pollution to emitters over 100,000 tonnes per annum would raise around $50 million per year which would be sufficient to pay for a major overhaul and upgrade of emergency services capacity including the initiatives proposed above, and cover the ongoing costs of maintaining and operating the expanded systems.
